Notice of Withdrawal

Taxation Determination TD 94/45 is withdrawn with effect from today.

1. TD 94/45 explains that the Assessing Handbooks cannot be relied on as evidence of the ATO's position. TD 94/45 refers to Taxation Ruling TR 92/20 for further guidance on the ATO publications to be relied upon.

2. TR 92/20 has been withdrawn and replaced by Taxation Ruling TR 2006/10. Assessing Handbooks are also no longer used by the ATO.

3. TD 94/45 has no ongoing relevance and is therefore withdrawn without replacement.
